Food Inc THE must see movie (in Off-topic)

Pwned February 4 2010 5:42 PM EST

Delves into what has happened to the food industry and unveils the ugly truth about the "Fast & Cheap" way of America, also explained is why the USDA and FDA are turning a blind eye to it.

May not be suitable for all ages due to some graphic content. I strongly suggest everyone to check out this documentary.

Go team America

I saw the movie after seeing this thread. It's pretty enlightening, but I have to remind you to take all information you hear with a grain of salt. Just because they set themselves out as the good guys doesn't mean they really are. For all we know, organic food that they seem to want us to switch to may be no better than the food produced by the mega-corporations.

Organic foods are made largely by the same mega-corporations

Knowing who grows or raises your food is seen as a luxury in this country... one worth being able to afford in my opinion.

Have not seen Food Inc. as I knew to be the organic food version of Expelled from previews. Saw as push-media long before seeing Pen & Teller's take on their show, which is a must see as well.
My grandfather use to grow corn and peas outside San Angelo. Now raises sheep, goats, and many cattle herds. For those looking for jokes, his leg was impaled by a goat once. ;)
Organic farming movement is utter bull crap, pun intended, for the greater part. Especially on the national market. Real organic farming can be found for sale near highways in plastic bags by persons not likely to speak engrish so well. Enjoy!

Its not about organic foods Gun. I hope people would watch it before they form opinions or criticize it. The documentary is just information nothing more, they don't tell you how to think or what to believe in. You do that yourself. If you don't like the information they are passing then its your choice to ignore it.

I also feel like the term organically grown is often over used and sometimes misleads people. The most organic produce you can get would be from your local Amish groups or if you personally grew or raised it yourself, luckily I have several Amish communities near "two hours away" so I can buy it from them or my local farmer's market.

Of course they tell you what to believe in. At the end they're all like "Do what we tell you and you can stop the big bad food industry."
